The Sabres have activated Jeff Skinner and Jordan Greenway from Injured Reserve, pushing their active contracts to 24, one above the usual NHL limit of 23.


Elliotte Friedman explained that the team was allowed to do so because of a unique aspect of the NHL's Christmas break rules:

Quirk in Christmas rules...Buffalo can roster 24 (one over the max) since they are under the cap. Makes some teams crazy, because they feel it gives an unfair advantage, but they are not required to make a loan/demotion during Holiday Freeze

Friedman added that many team could be angry at Bettman for allowing the Sabres this advantage.


Do you think Bettman gave an advantage to the Sabres?
